I think this is a good springboard post. The phrase "productive assets" is interesting.
So, who is going to pay for some of these assets that some have recognized no longer productive in a declining America? The sucker tax payer or the global investor? Lower taxes means that the risk of investing (through deficits) falls more upon the global investor.
Furthermore, the global investor certainly doesn't discourage sloppy spending from the pleb. In fact, he encourages it through concepts like the "cashless society." No cash means more credit spending, which means interest, which means more income for the creditor (e.g., a credit card costs the merchant money in fees to the bank).
So then, who is one typical global investor? He is one pushing all credit for plebs, or the rest of society. He pushes for centralization. He also pushes for all the social programs administered by government. He is not foolish enough to think any of these social programs will go away.
Combine all the investor's aims with the idea of thinking tax cuts are a bad thing, and it's fairly easy to see the idea being pushed by the OP.
